    Hi all,

    Just wandering what sound mode on the receiver do most people use when watching standard cable tv?

    DPL II, Cinema mode.

    If you find that collapses too much toward the center, you could also try music mode.

    DTS Neo:6 Cinema

    It seems to make better use of the surrounds and actually uses the center rear in a 6.1 setup. I don't notice DPL II Movie mode using the rear center at all.

    David, are you saying that DPL II Movie mode makes NO use of the surrounds? That only Music mode uses the surrounds? This seems backwards.

    Do DTS Neo modes work on a Mono source?

    A suprising amount of cable channels STILL don't broadcast in stereo.

    No. Dolby Pro-Logic II & DTS Neo:6 only work on stereo.
